MACON, Ga. (41NBC/WMGT) – The Otis Redding Foundation is expanding its Otis Music Camp with after school and school break programming called Camp DREAM. The new camp, which will be housed in the Tubman African American Museum and Theatre Macon in Downtown Macon, is for students in Kindergarten through fifth grade.
Camp DREAM will start out as a pilot program during the Fall Break, October 9-12, and then will launch in January 2019 with after school programs.
Otis Redding Music Camp coaches will cover songwriting, percussion, piano, theater, voice, dance and visual arts. The students studying in these areas will create one project and showcase the work they’ve done over the week with a performance.
The program is modeled after STREAM summer programs, which were created by Legacy Builders Foundation Inc. CEO and Founder Dr. Vickie Perdue Scott. Scott and the Foundation’s Justin Andrews will serve as on-site coordinators.
